it’s love #haiku 307

It's a feeling kind of weekend. Open I declare, love is sacred, paramount, for those near and far; winds of storm, rain pelts fear may dominate, let not love be a limit.   The haiku is a contribution to Ronovan's Haiku Challenge #307.

A new dawn #writephoto

In response to this photo prompt at Sue Vincent's Daily Echo:   Here is my contribution: Insignificance this human life - atop a mountain heralding victory then the looming chill of the shadow of the next, but look to the sun though casting shadows its rays of warmth always following; The indomitable human spirit - at … Continue reading A new dawn #writephoto

Roll up your sleeves

Positivity is change


If we are 100% certain everything will remain as is then there is no need for positivity, or negativity for the matter.  If 'things' are great now, then it's fait accompli.  The same for the so-called 'bad stuff'.  Realistically, there are few things that are truly 'bad stuff', rather perspectives.

Lighthouse and other musings

I love lighthouses… what a realisation! I cannot recall a time when I had missed an opportunity to explore one… and this time, I am dragging my children along. Approaching the lighthouse, the inescapable sense of ‘big’…perhaps the vast blue sky and roaring ocean in the background add to the sense of magnificence.
